Sony MDR-1R 'prestige headphones' review

Pocket Lint
14 November 2012
  • Conclusion: Are the Sony MDR-1R "prestige headphones" worth the £300 asking price on the UK Sony Store? That's arguable. But the £200 price floating around on other major online retailers is far more, er, on the money. Taken in that context and we have heaps of praise for these over-ears. There's a lot of detail in the sound, right down to picking out individual reverb amid the mix - it's a really great over-ear experience.
  • Pros: Eventually very comfy, great sound, lots of mid-high frequency range 'snap' yet enough bass to deliver a rounded sound, attractive design
  • Cons: Exposed drivers can touch against ears, bass doesn't rumble as much as the higher-spec versions, not necessarily perfect for on-the-go listening, Sony Store price is too steep, really low frequencies not as impactful as might be expected
